I am not by nature a jealous person but now and again I look at someone and think, “I wish I was THAT lucky!”
Jewellery, in all its forms tells the story of our life. Whether we choose a necklace or a bracelet, they all tell people more about who we are, and they remind us of places and people, events and special things.
Our friends, pets and family links are like a beautiful rope bridge that supports us as we wobble across the chasm of life. When we are young, we often run along that bridge not looking over the edge, just heading for the opposite bank.
According to Wikipedia, “Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction.”
That is fine in its own way, but I want to explore the space beyond objects and events, deep into our personal spaces, in our heads, between each of us, in our lives.
In a recent conversation on Sixty and Me, I enjoyed chatting about memory markers. These are memories that lodge in our minds when we have a new experience and also have the ability to ‘slow down time.’ It started me thinking.
I have been thinking a lot about New Year’s Resolutions lately – why they are so hard to keep and whether they are worth making.
To many people they are a bit of a joke, but deep down I think most of us want 2017 to be better in all kinds of ways than 2016.
The longer I live, the more I am amazed at the way the paths of life interweave and lead us down highways and byways we never knew existed.
I am having so much fun being a guest blogger on Sixty and Me. The strength and vibrancy of this community is amazing and I love interacting with you all.
Bridget and I once lived on a little island in the English Channel. We did all the usual things. We got married and had children. Between us, we had various projects, like founding a prep school and running an estate agency. We even wrote a TV cartoon series and founded IVA (International Virtual Assistants).
